Software asset management

Develop a robust program

To make the most of your complex software assets, a robust software asset management (SAM) program is a must. Our SAM questionnaire helps your organization evaluate its existing capabilities and identify the areas of improvement that have the most impact.

In today’s fast-paced business world, organizations rely heavily on software to enhance productivity, improve efficiencies, and meet their myriad business goals. This makes it especially important—and increasingly difficult—to keep pace with evolving software licensing rules. And as licensing terms and models grow in complexity, publisher audits are on the rise. Not only is it critical to ensure software assets are compliant across the entire organization but, to realize the true benefits of these assets, they must also be fully optimized, efficient, and cost-effective.

A robust software asset management (SAM) program is essential to achieving this feat. In today’s modern software environment, SAM involves a framework designed to ensure all software licences and support-maintenance contracts are tracked and managed throughout their lifecycle.

When executed correctly—and equipped with sufficient resources—such a program can help your organization:

  • Reduce information technology (IT) costs 
  • Limit business and legal risk related to the ownership and use of software 
  • Maximize IT responsiveness and end-user productivity
  • Minimize security threats posed by unauthorized installed software
